US strikies at Houthi, controls their rage

After a merchant sailor, Liberian-flagged, Greek-owned bulk cargo carrier, Tutor went missing from an earlier Houthi strike on a ship, the United States military unleashed a wave of attacks targeting their radar sites. The attacks come as the US Navy faces the most intense combat ever since World War II. “This is the most sustained combat that the US Navy has seen since World War II—easily, no question,” said Bryan Clark, a former Navy submarine and a Hudson Institute senior.

He further commented how these attacks are meant as a measure to control the rebels’ booming rage and competency.  Although the rebels believe that these attacks are meant to stop the Israel-Hamas war, they often target ships and sailors who have nothing to do with the war, halving the traffic through the Red Sea corridor, which is vital for cargo and energy shipments between Asia, Europe, and the Mideast.

The Central Command also confirmed that the commercial sailor from the Liberian-flagged, Greek-owned bulk cargo carrier Tutor remained missing after a Houthi bomb-carrying drone attack on Wednesday. “The crew abandoned ship and were rescued by USS Philippine Sea and partner forces,” Central Command said. “We’re trying to account for the particular seafarer in the ship and are praying that we could find him.”

He further adds, “The Houthis claim to be acting on behalf of Palestinians in Gaza and yet they are targeting and threatening the lives of third-country nationals who have nothing to do with the conflict in Gaza,” Central Command said. “The ongoing threat to international commerce caused by the Houthis, in fact, makes it harder to deliver badly needed assistance to the people of Yemen as well as Gaza.”
